Comments/suggestions

3bythesea: What about The Mistress of Spices? (Mon, 01 Dec 2014 21:05:55 -0500)

2wonderY: Yarrow's tastes seem to favor some classics. I'd nominate Colleen McCullough's Tim or The Ladies of Missalonghi. (Tue, 02 Dec 2014 09:29:48 -0500)

imyril: There's high scores for tags in fantasy, fairy tale and children's - perhaps Cat Valente's The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland... (Tue, 02 Dec 2014 10:22:54 -0500)

holly_golightly: Virago authors seem to score high for yarrow - I'd recommend the wartime novelist Elizabeth Taylor (A View of the Harbour is my favourite of her work so far) or for a more modern, Gothic take on the novel, Wise Children by Angela Carter is great. (Tue, 02 Dec 2014 19:22:18 -0500)

Jenni_Canuck: Since you love fiction by women, I’ve selected books by some of my favourite contemporary Canadian authors who may be new to you. I did check your LT books and your blog but found no matches so I hope there are no duplicates of books you already have!

Best wishes for a magical holiday season and a new year filled with health, happiness and many hours of great reading! (Wed, 03 Dec 2014 22:27:46 -0500)

ablachly: done! (Thu, 11 Dec 2014 12:12:38 -0500)
